If I were to describe the one thing that takes up my time and energy when I could be putting it to much better use it’s when I am in “my little room” doing my little thing as if no one else is there. Just my little thing as if no one else matters.
The result of being “in my little room” is that I create a disturbance; I certainly disturb the person or persons involved with whatever it is that is being done; and my choice disturbs all of us because we’re One Spirit. It can be as simple as my choosing away from returning an email or phone call in clarity and in a timely manner or my sending written work to someone when I haven‘t taken the time to proofread it because I had something else I’d rather be doing. The “excuse” I give most often is that I was doing my “job”, my “job” in the little room sense of the word.
So, I’m sitting there late at night “cleaning it up.”
I know the little-room-ness of things from both sides of the fence – as disturber and disturbee. Here’s an example. In a recent Satsang My Teacher referred to someone focused on their “own little role”. That was me. Before the Talk began, I set up three devices to record the Talk; then after we had Meditated for two or three minutes, I asked My Teacher whether it was OK to start recording; then I repeated it again and I repeated it again even though My Teacher had said something but I didn’t hear it because I was focused on recording and when to begin doing that. Then My Teacher had to stop because of the interference I had caused.
At the beginning of the Talk, instead of being Present, I was focused on my own little “job”. By doing that, I chose into karma, which takes me out of the Forcefield – the Growth and Upliftment/the Grace brought Forward by My Teacher, Who now has to stop and work a lot harder to do That.
More important, my choice into karma broke the Forcefield. Through the Grace of My Teacher the Forcefield was reconstituted and the Satsang continued. If My Teacher had chosen otherwise, I would have been responsible for the Growth and Upliftment that the Souls present would otherwise have received from the Satsang.
I was in my little room – focused on, OK, now I turn on the recorder. I was focused on my “job”, as if the Service I am Honored to do, were a “job” in the world. I left out the “big picture”, Which is My Teacher/God/all Souls. As long as I pushed that button on the recorder, who cares, really, what was needed, etc. That’s the attitude with it.
Here’s What My Teacher said in this regard during the Satsang:
“Now, if you paid close attention … at the beginning - that to me was very indicative that so many of us are focused on our own little role, not aware of a bigger sense going on. Not aware of the Spirit That we are, not aware, as was said so beautifully earlier, that God lives in us as us. So God lives in me as me. That It’s God and we need to have that sense - not just the sense of your little, small job egotistically - but how it fits in in the bigger picture and that you are the bigger picture and we all do our part to bring forth the movement of Spirit and the Spiritual Progression and the Spiritual Energy Patterns That are here and That come to the planet. …”
My deeper understanding is that I need to just Be and to Trust and to be quiet and to Allow the next step – rather than running my ego in everyone’s face – “my little job”, “my little job”, “my little job.” I’m with The Teacher inwardly, by Being in the Soul Body with Him.
I also Know that we are One Spirit; and that my choice to break the Forcefield, Which is an Extension of the Lord, God Himself into this world, disturbs all Souls. As My Teacher has Taught, a butterfly flapping its wings in one place – or my choice into karma - can cause a hurricane someplace else.
Earlier today, I asked someone to please send an email to someone with information about attending an Event that was taking place later today. The email was sent – and I thanked this person for their Service - only it left out key information that the person needed in order to attend.
I Received this action energetically as a “little room” action, a “my job in the world” experience. As a karmic/disturbing action. It took my time and my energy. I also cared that this person did, in fact, attend this Event; and to me, This Attendance was the Priority: that this Soul attend the Meditation Of The Light Of The Most High that evening, that this Soul Receive That Blessing/Tap into the Light.
When I asked that clear instructions be sent, the person responded that this person “was at work” and would do so soon. I have since Learned that I needed to say that this needed to be done immediately.
I was “at work”, too, on that Satsang conference call, outside mySelf doing the “job”. Blind to the Sacredness of The Service, to the Priority, habitually going with the priority with a small “p”, with the one(s) the basic selves - the part of us that brings forward our karmic patterns - want us to follow.
One more example: I recently had a videoconference-call scheduled and the person was 30 minutes late. I waited. Same thing, basically – she was doing her “job” in the world, which, as it turned out, was “something came up with my kids that I had to take care of.” The focus was on “my little job” instead of on What My Teacher Teaches, Which is Individual Responsibility With And In A Group Focus.
Anytime I’m doing “my job” in the world and that’s my focus, I’m in karma and creating more and that disturbance is violence towards others. As My Teacher has Taught me many times, what I do affects others, The Teacher in particular.
The Solution is the Priority – the Job is Being Centered/Present; the Business I’m in is the Business of Loving God, as My Teacher Teaches. Being in Alignment with the Priority – Lining Up with That.
And doing Self-talk so that I am in Loving Cooperation inside mySelf.
Anything else is karma for which I’m Responsible.
